You lost today, kid. But that doesn't mean you have to like it.




What sorts of WordPress themes/plugins would you all say are essential for posting chapter-books to the web? I've worked with WordPress before (lot of breadth, very little depth) and am quite comfortable with the hosting side of things.

Most of the sites I've seen that post chapter books on WordPress sites (web novel mostly) seem pretty minimalistic. Anything that does the job in an interesting way or elegant way or is it all just nearly-default theme plus straightforward table of contents and leave it at that?

I thought about using something cool/quirky like Pollen, but can't justify spending the time learning something that niche right now.

Edit: lmao why do half of these have women with huge boobs on the cover? Did I just stumble on the male-audience equivalent of alpha male shape-shifting billionaire romance novels?

Probably a good idea to lurk out the Web Serials Thread in the book barn and get a feel for recommendations, I think one of this thread's authors (Angel Opportunity?) tried branching out into LitRPG and found that the audience has very specific preferences and expectations that can be tricky to work around.

Are you looking at web serial fiction in general, or specifically LitRPG? LitRPG does seem like a genre where audience pandering cover design would boost readership by 20%.
